ATLANTIC YOUTH CHALLENGE TO PREVENT DRUGGED DRIVING – THE PROGRAM

In Atlantic Canada, the John Howard Societies, RCMP, Université de Moncton, and local high schools are coming together to deliver a Challenge to Youth to Prevent Drugged Driving. Through professionally guided, youth led school campaigns, students will be presented with messages which will enable them to make informed, healthier decisions regarding cannabis use and decrease the problematic behavior of driving impaired.

The evidenced based program design guides students to become advocates for positive change in respect to cannabis use and drugged driving. Students are asked non identifier survey questions, at the beginning and end of the school campaigns, which would indicate if the program positively influenced their decision-making and reduced risk behaviors. Schools whose students led the most informative and creative messaging are provided the opportunity to continue their message through community engagement activities.  Grade 10 students will receive more information about this initiative on Feb. 18th during a short assembly
